May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me” (John 17:23 NLT ).

    How to respond to a world of toxic positivity. November 5, 2021 by Captain Laura Van Schaick
    Filed Under:
    Opinion & Critical Thought

    We live in a culture of toxic positivity that thrives off memes that quip, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” and T-shirts that read, “Good Vibes Only.” Some feelings are easier to bear than others, but trying to exist in a “Good Vibes Only” world isn’t realistic or healthy.

    Opinion & Critical Thought

    Music can grab people like words seldom do. Music can entertain, draw attention and even bridge the gap between the often-insular language of the church and the world beyond our doors.

    It’s that time of year again. In the midst of all that our world has experienced and continues to wrestle with, we are invited to the table to give thanks together. We pause to celebrate the blessings and to hear again God’s invitation to be a people who bless.

    Opinion & Critical Thought

    It’s not something we often talk about. In North America, 15-20 percent of pregnancies end in miscarriage and one in eight couples have trouble getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy.
